What percentage of sales do you think the Accurian box represents to 
Tandy on a national level?

I assure you it is so small as to be less than dust.

Radio Shack makes their money selling cell phones, batteries, and 
*mainstream* home entertainment products.
It is a bother to them to have to deal with us bargain basement hunters 
who come in wanting these off the wall
discintinued pieces of junk,  when they could be selling a DirecTV or 
Dish system and making some real profit.
